This month’s them was Killer! The little magazine is serious. It’s a thicker, glossy, paper similar to Loot Crate – very well done all around.

Stovington Eagles Shirt – Value $20?

This shirt is speaking to me like Tony speaking to Danny. I’m a big Stephen King fan, so anything from his works is a win for me. This shirt is from a scene in The Shining:

I’m totally wearing it right now.

Child’s Play Chucky Plush – Value $20

We received the same plush in the October Horror Block. I mentioned in that review that I just don’t like this style of plush, and it’s still holding true this year.

Boba Fett Mug – Value $15.90 on Amazon

Next up is a mug featured the famous Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett. I’m loving this mug, I can’t get to many mugs in boxes – I always use them – and it being Star Wars is an added bonus.

Here’s a look at the back of the mug too. I like the design!

Mars Attacks Patch – Value $5?

American Psycho Business Card – Value $1?

These were the small items this month. I loved Mars Attacks when I was younger, and it still cracks me up today. I was surprised to find a single business card in the box – I’m hoping they didn’t advertise that they’d feature an item from American Psycho because I’d be super disappointed.

Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe – Value $9.14 on Amazon

I highly recommend this do any Deadpool fan, even if you’re not into the comics – it’s a fun read – not for young fans, though!

Deadpool #1 – Value $1

This is a reprint of New Mutants #98. It features Deadpool meeting Cable for the first time!

Verdict: This was a pretty good month for ZBox. I’m loving this shirt, mug, and both comics, which accounts for most of the value in the box – so this month definitely works for me! I’m excited to see what next month brings, but so far I’ve enjoyed unboxing this one – and I appreciate how professionally done it all is. I thought they went broad with the theme, but also stuck to it – nicely done!

What did you think of the February ZBox?

The themed monthly mystery box for fans of games, movies, cult TV, comic books and purveyors of all things popular culture. Each month’s box is strictly limited edition.

I liked the box a lot, I had a discount offer so the box cost me £9.99.

I already owned both Deadpool items and managed to sell them for £8. My T-Shirt then faded quite badly after 1 wash and Zavvi refunded me £3 for this.

All in all I received this box and gained £1.01.

The T-Shirt is wearable as a workout shirt, the Plush isn’t great but can sir on my shelf and I use the mug.

The business card and patch are great throwaway items.

I love the Patrick Bateman business card. That’s my favorite scene in the movie!

Morgan

OMG American Psycho is my favorite book and movie! I would love to frame and hang this as art. Just looked online and can’t find anywhere that you can buy just one card 🙁

Tamara

I love it too! 😀

I love that they’re including things like that and the T-shirt from The Shining (which, I admit, I didn’t recognize at first.)

Other than the Chucky plush (I don’t like that kind either. Also, I don’t like Chucky.), this is a pretty great box! I wish it wasn’t so pricey, though. (Darn that u.s. dollar to GB pound exchange rate!)
